Pablo Reinoso was introduced to carpentry by his grandfather, and began crafting furniture at the age of six. Combining artistry and craftsmanship in his sculptures, Reinoso hews wood, slate, brass, marble, and steel into surrealist designs. Referencing organic and manufactured forms, Reinoso’s sculptures evoke such disparate entities as spaghetti, tree branches, and human hair, and, with their functional purpose, probe at the relationship between art and design.
